Nobody could have predicted Lana Del Rey's success four months ago, but someone coming in so late in the year and turning huge rarely happens. It's really not much to work your whole feature around.
a little tenuous
apparently she's had this (brilliant) unreleased full-length floating around the internet since 2010. So it's hard to attribute her hype to a one-off single. I mean, after a stellar full-length and a couple of singles w/ b-sides, we've got a pretty good idea she's gonna make some waves.
Other than that, I can't comment on the other bands mentioned. Never really heard them. Not even the BBC ones, which are apparently old news. (Ha! God, we live in such an insular world! Other than Adele, none of my non-music friends have even heard of the The Fly, much less the bands they're touting!)
Now we're talking
I get emotional
I can't click on that, but would like to watch it.
